Beautiful Building Lot for Sale in Alachua, Florida

by Lalita Sakhi dasi

Posted February 24, 2012

We are selling one of the last beautiful building lots left in Alachua, Florida. This lot is rectangular, measuring 100 x 138 ft. [Total = 13,800 sq. ft. (1,280 sq. m.) or 1/3 acre]; it is also vastu and faces the east. It sits at the end of a paved cul-de-sac (which is great for kids!) and also has sidewalks. The lot has seven large, beautiful trees and only forest views at the rear and side. There are several nice spots for a small, medium, or moderately large sized garden.

Right now it costs only $55-62/sq ft-to build a NEW Low-E concrete block home that will meet all your immediate and future needs. Why settle for an aging energy inefficient fixer-upper that you are always going to be working on! An additional benefit is that a new house will meet the codes for any potential hurricanes with winds of 110mph. Older fixer-uppers will generally require a new roof if a hurricane should ever hit like it did in fall of 2005 with winds of only 75 mph.

No site work is needed; the lot is ready to build upon. There are mostly new homes on our street. It's also a very safe neighborhood, with some devotees living nearby too. It is close to Santa Fe High School, 4-1/2 miles (7.25 km) to ISKCON Raman Reti temple, and less than 1 mile (2.2 km) to downtown Alachua. It is also close to Interstate Highway I-75(but you cannot hear it!!!) and very convenient to Santa Fe Community College/University of Florida and all other shopping. A county school bus goes directly to the devotee charter school at New Raman Reti.

This lot is at the highest elevation in Alachua County!! It will NEVER flood. Which means you can even build a basement if you like to can and store your goods and veggies! Many of the homes in this neighborhood have basements. You could easily install a built-in pool or bathing ghat. There are no pesky homeowner association fees. There is no minimum size home that must be built. We also have a 1700 sq ft. Vastu house plan (includes a mother-in-law apartment), or you can plan your own design. Our price has recently been reduced. We need to sell it because we need to go to India to work on our health issues and also our spiritual lives of course! We bought it for 33k and had a building permit approved but finances caused us to change our plans. We are now asking for 27,500k!
